Abstract

This research aims to design a hardware random number generator running on wireless identification and sensing platform (WISP), which is a lightweight Internet of things device. The accelerometer sensor on WISP is used as the entropy source. This entropy source is post-processed with de-biasing and extraction methods to provide more uniformly distributed results that can be used in the authentication protocols between a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag and an RFID reader. The obtained random number outputs are tested using the well-known NIST random number test suite. It is seen that the numbers pass all the tests in the NIST randomness test suite.
